Ben Nevis - Challenge Weekend


Conquer Britain’s highest peak during a Scottish weekend away.

It’s no mean feat scaling the summit of Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest peak, which is why our weekends based around the challenge are so popular.

Here’s the thing: hiking 11 miles with over 1300 metres of ascent and descent is a toughie – do-able but your muscles are going to know about it.

So our solution is to make a wee weekend of it with comfortable lodgings to relax in, plenty of time to bond with your fellow challengers and enough food on-tap to satisfy the most ravenous of appetites.

3 dates available:
Friday 18th - Sunday 20th June
Friday 23rd - Sunday 25th July
Friday 24th - Sunday 26th September

Prices from £155 depending on room type.

Glastonbury Walking Weekend


Join us for an easy walking weekend in the heart of Somerset, the perfect place to be in the middle of summer as part of a welcoming group. With the famous wildlife paradise of the Somerset levels just a stone’s throw away, we’ll also be surrounded by small hills, ancient woodlands, and the mythical site of Glastonbury Tor. This is an excellent weekend to come on if you're new to Large Outdoors and maybe worried about your fitness, as the aim, as always, is on enjoying the day out rather than trying to cover a huge distance!

Available on the following dates:
Friday 2nd - Sunday 4th July 2021
Friday 24th - Sunday 26th September 2021

Prices from £135 depending on room type.

Jurassic Coast Weekend - Lulworth Cove

Lulworth Cove

Gentle walks, gorgeous coastline and grand company...

Just the names Durdle Door and Bat’s Head can be enticement enough to walk along an outstanding stretch of Dorset’s coastline.

So we thought why not create a gentle walking trip where we can dawdle at Durdle Door, linger at Lulworth Cove, saunter up to Swyre Head, and rest our limbs afterwards in peaceful surroundings just a spitting distance from the sea.

Price: £139pp
